We have a new TENOR in our group!


Andrew was born and raised in New York City but is excited to call Boston his new home. He is an engineer at Sonos by day and a singer, guitarist, and lover of dim sum by night. He also enjoys cooking, long walks, and singing Christmas songs all year long.

New Members and a Returning Member!
9.2.19

Ilan - Beatboxer

Ilan was found living in a well-appointed dumpster in an alley behind Boston Common Coffee House. Patrick heard vocal percussion coming from the dumpster and when he opened it to find Ilan, he exclaimed, “At last! We have a beatboxer!” Patrick delivered Ilan to Shannon and she gave Ilan his place in Mass Whole Notes. Since leaving the dumpster, Ilan has learned to love Italian food and has grown to enjoy karaoke.

Rebecca - Alto

Rebecca moved to Boston 2 years ago from her hometown right outside of Chicago. In Boston, she wears many (too many?) hats - drama teacher, actor, medical interpreter, and Spanish tutor. Once the music director of Extreme Measures A Cappella at Northwestern University, she's extremely excited to be a new member of the Mass Whole Notes!! Other favorite things besides singing in no particular order: pizza, the color green, yoga, playing violin.

Sara - Alto

Sara moved to Boston after graduating from Northwestern University near Chicago, where she was President of Extreme Measures A Cappella. A native and devoted lover of Cleveland, OH, she now works at ActBlue, a nonprofit building fundraising software for Democratic campaigns. Outside of MWN and work, Sara can be found listening to podcasts and Broadway soundtracks, cooking, and hiking around New England.

Taylor - Bass

We are so happy to announce that Taylor is coming back to us after a year of changing jobs, moving apartments, and buying the cutest black lab puppy you've ever seen. Taylor works as an analyst at a local tech company by day when not singing the the Mass Whole Notes. He enjoys hiking, running, cycling, and traveling. He also has a minor obsession with corgis and looks at pictures of them all the time.

We have a new ALTO in our group!


Here all the way from Texas, Kaysie (left) is a mechanical engineer who is struggling to survive in the cold. After singing with the Rice Philharmonics for 4 years, she's excited to be continuing her a cappella journey with the Mass Whole Notes. Outside of engineering and singing, she loves photography, knitting, and watching Taiwanese dramas.

New Members!
9.14.18

We have two new members in our group! Theresa and Erica add spice and style, blend and body, fierceness and fun to our Alto section. 

Erica (right) hails from Cleveland, Ohio, where she grew up singing in the church choir. She attended Hamilton College, where she sang pretty much all the time, primarily as the musical director for Tumbling After, an all-female a cappella group. These days, Erica spends her days as a biotech recruiter and her nights as a frequent comedy show attendee and occasional improv performer.


Theresa (left) has been involved with music all her life and is excited to be joining the Mass Whole Notes after participating in and directing an a cappella group during her college years. Theresa loves to travel and meeting new people. Other favorite hobbies include binging Netflix shows (ex. Great British Baking Show), animals (ex. dogs), Harry Potter (ex. Book 5) and eating (ex. mac & cheese, pickles).

BEST SOLOIST! Boston Harmony Sweepstakes

Our magnificent Larry Ong won best soloist at the 2018 Boston Harmony Sweepstakes for his interpretation of "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Rait and arranged by Matty Williams.

Night at the Rockwell - Spring Concert Success!
6.11.18

Our final concert of the season at the Rockwell in Davis Square was a rousing success! We sold out 160 seats, and with the help of our guest group "Immutable," we rocked the house. Singing some of our music for the last time (RIP All These Things I've Done), and singing with some of our members for the last time (We miss you already Ali!), it was definitely a night to remember.
